If their claims are true then they have come a long way and air attacks there could become very expensive for the attackers.

Not so much. We've seen video of cruise missiles going through windows

I'm surprised at you, Tim, everybody knows even our B-52s carry cruise missiles nowadays.

So stand-off launches are possible too.

A cruise missile is a guided missile used against terrestrial targets, that remains in the atmosphere and flies the major portion of its flight path at approximately constant speed. Cruise missiles are designed to deliver a large warhead over long distances with high precision. Modern cruise missiles are capable of travelling at supersonic or high subsonic speeds, are self-navigating, and are able to fly on a non-ballistic, extremely low-altitude trajectory.
